Guth Gafa la Irish Film & Television Network:

The 2010 Guth Gafa International Documentary Film Festival will take place in Gortahork between the 10th and the 13th June next year and is currently inviting film submissions.

Next year's event will be the 5th edition of the festival. In 2009, despite budget cuts of almost 30% due to the recession, the Festival organisers saw an increase of nearly 35% in audience attendance. Over 70% of the festival’s programming in 2009 came from European countries, with the other films coming from South Africa, Australia, Canada, China, India and the USA.

Guth Gafa does not have an open submission policy. It is a 100% curated Festival, with a team of programmers attending international and Irish Festivals to seek out the best new documentary films for the festival. However, international and Irish films (over 50 minutes only) will be considered if they fit the programming requirements.

Submissions should be made by writing first to and should contain the following information: Name of Film, Director, Year of Production, Other Festival Screenings, Awards, Short Synopsis of the film (up to 300 words), Directors' biography (up to 200 words), Website address and e-mail address of the Contact Person for the Film. Entrants are asked to mark the Subject line of your e-mail – ‘Submissions 2010’...
